Janel suggested a pina colada recipe which I thought was a great idea. She offered to bake it for me which I thought was an equally great idea. I’d share the recipe, but she departed for vacation yesterday and I forgot to get it from her.The cake was originally a rectangle. I cut a section off the bottom (short side), then cut again to echo sleeve shapes which were attached to the shirt body with icing. I made a big batch of white buttercream icing which I subdivided into various batches and added food coloring, saving some of the white. Janel did the actual icing of the cake Friday night at my house as my hands were having a shaky day and I couldn’t make a straight line.

I made sugar cookie buttons and used a bamboo skewer to poke the buttonholes immediately after removing the little cookies from the ovenEveryone had fun Saturday and they all got a kick out of the cake—so I count our pool party a success.
